Today's Features

  •  Once when my little granddaughter, Layla, was less than 3 years old, she was in the study rummaging through a bookshelf.  She found an old paperback with a picture of a stained glass window and a cross on the front cover.  She immediately said, “Nana! This says Jesus loves me!”

    Out of the mouth of babes! Such a profound theological idea proclaimed so simply!

  •  Congratulations to all the participants in the 4-H Poetry Contest. Participants are to be commended for their efforts. Eighty-three poems were entered and judged.

  •  Many of us are familiar with the “sell-by,” “best if used by” and “use-by” dates that appear on food products. These dates are expiration dates that provide information on the quality of products purchased. Knowing what these dates mean help consumers make better decisions on product quality, what to keep, what to toss and when.

    The “sell-By” date lets the store know how long they should display a product for sale. It is best to buy food products before this date expires.

  •  Recently I came upon a reflection about creation, our whole universe, that noted we are made of the same materials as the stars.  

    In my heart of hearts, I am not sure about that, but verifying it is a major project for our scientists.

    As it is, all creation here on Planet Earth is composed of currently 118 elements. Wikipedia tells us that 98 of them occur naturally. Eighty are stable, others are radioactive and evolve or decay over extremely long or short times, and others are human made from various nuclear reactions.
